This week Lando and I butt heads over the idea of creation in the Internet age. Has the Internet brought new freedoms and landscapes to creativity, or had it diluted the waters so badly that nothing is really original anymore? Speaking of online content creation, will tiered internet kill this nascent medium? On both elements of this discussion, Lando and I are on very sides of the argument. Enjoy!

This week Cooter joins us as we open with a lovely discussion on the newest robotic innovation: corpse eating! After that, it's the political corner as we discuss the recent nomination hearings for Sonia Sotomayor and what they reveal about the lack of discussion in this country about race, and beyond that we each take a moment to reflect on some of our little differences. From there, it's the renewed fight between Microsoft and Google before we take some time to comment on the casting choices for the Green Lantern and Jonah Hex films. Finally, the big topic as we think about what a future war will look like. The days of trenches and tanks seem to be rapidly fading, so what can we expect out of the next big conflict?

This week we're skewing heavy into the tech sector, as we talk about the recent Google Chrome OS announcement. From there we begin a bigger discussion of netbooks, laptops, the future of OS design, and the lack of innovation in both hardware and software. We also consider the fact that the big bottleneck in evolving our interaction with technology may be US, not the companies making these products. Enjoy!

This week we're talking quite a bit of tech, starting off Lando telling a story about an alarm clock that comes with a bonus heart attack. From there, we talk about my recently acquired Palm Pre. We go over the good and the bad of this 'Palm saviour'. After that, rather than spend an hour comparing it to the iPhone we go over the new iPhone announcements and whether this new version of the phone is that big a deal. Once we're done talking cell phones, we move into some morally questionable territory with the ethics of cents and the recent doubleTwist flap. Finally, we talk about the new Star Wars MMO that is big on promise and low on anything tangible. Can this new attempt to make the Lucasverse into a playable MMO avoid the fgate of SW: Galaxies? We have our doubts, and we'll tell you why. Enjoy!

This week we've got Cooter back on the panel, and we start off with the disgrace that most people like to call Spiderman 3. We talk about the movie version of the character in general before we turn to another disappointing sequel, Left 4 Dead 2. Is this a sequel, or a cash grab by Vavle? That leads us into online gaming, which evolves into a discussion on the recent 'internet czar' to be appointed by our President and what impact that may have on the net in general. Then, a discussion on the gray area of illustrated child porn, specifically from a recent case involving a man being branded a pedophile for owning manga. Next, we talk about Project Natal and the potential for both success and failure of this amazing technology initiative. Talking about Microsoft leads us into Windows 7, which is shaping up to possibly erase the stain of Vista. Finally, we talk about Linda Carter (yes, Wonder Woman) and stem cell contacts. Enjoy!

This week Lando and I are examining the changing terrain of internet law, where innovation and privacy are now at odds with profits and piracy. We'll be talking about the recent FISA bill passage here in the States, the larger war against piracy and even a little bit of gaming as it relates to the concept of software ownership. This time in history is shaping up to be an important one for the internet, in many ways paving the way for the what the internet and our usage of it will be.

This week Lando and I are putting out a short show talking about technology in th workplace. Where does the responsibility lie in a company when it comes to adopting technology and making sure the workers are able to use it? Who makes the decisions on when something like a new version of Office or Windows should be implemented, and what should that process look like? It's a tech-heavy episode this week with your old pals, so sit back and enjoy.

This week we're doing a little viewer mail before delving into our topic: the nature of war within cyberspace. So much of our lives tied to the internet, and in this increasingly interconnected society what does conflict consist of when the battlefield is entirely virtual? Is there any such thing as war online, or is it more like a giant game of Battleship between faceless combatants?

This week Lando and I are starting out talking about Scientology, which seems to be popping up in the news a lot lately. Is this really a religion, or simply a cult with a better bank account? After that, we're taking stock of the recent MacWorld Expo, where the big announcement was the slender MacBook Air. The two of us will examine this newest laptop addition to the Apple fleet, as well as the other big announcements of the show. Is the new crop of Cupertino specials worth raving about, or is there really very little to notice this time around?

This week we're taking a trip through CES after my recent visit in Las Vegas to the monstrous technology show. While it is a true behemoth that is in grave danger of being crushed beneath its own weight, it still produces a few gems among the sewage. Lando and I are taking a look through my notes on the show at some of things I thought were noteworthy, from huge TVs to the Blu-Ray bomb that was dropped. It's most definitely a demented circus that happens out in Vegas, and we're putting it under the microscope.

This is Part 2 of our discussion about whether to buy or build a new computer. In this part we're going over the process of building a computer for yourself.

This week Lando and I are discussing a topic with two very different approaches, each of us being very familiar with one side. We're talking about the idea of buying or building a new computer, and the benefits and risks associated with going either way. Lando has a thorough history in the area of buying pre-built machines, and I have been building systems for years for not only myself but others. This isn't so much a "which route is better" discussion, but instead a study of the inherent factors that play into both choices. Because of the show length and the clear break where we switch from one topic to another, we've broken the show into 2 parts, this first one covering our standard pre-ramble and buying a pre-built computer. Enjoy the show and your holidays, whatever they may be!

This week we're talking about what seems to be the latest trend in personal computing, the magical touchscreen. Microsoft has their table, the iPhone was the rage 2 months ago, and now the seemingly invulnerable iPod has gone button-free with the new iTouch. But is the touchscreen the future, or are we just seeing the latest in a long line of overhyped but underadopted technologies? Will touchscreens dominate our lives from now on, or are we looking at another product architecture that will fail to impress the masses?

For Episode 33 Lando and I are discussing and debating the nature and future of the online community model, from gaming to forums. What is this volatile culture that has emerged from the dominance of the internet? How does it mirror (or differ from) our offline lives, and what will it's ultimate fate be? Lando and I certainly have our views, and we get some occasional sparks out of this show.

Episode 32 finds us contemplating those modern technologies and changes that we probably never notice. Things like internet and cell phones seem commonplace, but the reality is that these are relatively new innovations that have very quickly become as integral to modern life as a vehicle. Is this invisible integration a bad thing? Is it significant, or simply a byproduct of a rapidly changing culture?

For this episode we're lightening things up a bit, focusing on the nearly unlimited sources of free entertainment on the web. From games to 24/7 webcams (of the non-porn variety), we offer up a small selection of places to go and things to see on the internet. Hopefully you'll pick up a few sites that you haven't heard of or seen before.
